Betclic Sportsbook Review

Betclic will appeal to seasoned sports bettors with their straight-to-the-point setup. They won’t be distracted by a litany of props or pop-ups. Instead, they’ll have the capacity to create an account and make deposits in seconds, with a sportsbook that promises super-quick withdrawals.

Our Hot Take

Betclic is for all the bettors who don’t need the bells and whistles like live-streaming or an absurd list of props. That’s not an insult either. Some like to register, make deposits and place bets and then be on their way. Betclic allows bettors outside of the USA and Canada to do that.

Account creation

Get Registered in Seconds!

Betclic’s three-step registration process is more than easy. Their work flow is as follows: Step one asks you for your name and birthdate. Step two confirms that you have a valid address and mobile number. And step three, the final step, has you finish your account with a username and password.

When you’re done setting up your account, there’s no need to go searching for a way to make a deposit. Betclic takes you to that page automatically. You’re free to exit out and poke around the site a bit more, but they make it easy to fund your account from the get-go.

Welcome Bonuses

Free Bets

Your welcome bonus at Betclic will take effect after you place your first wager. They will match your bet up to $100, so feel free to take a risk when you’re starting out.

Deposits

Safe and Secure

Deposits won’t take long after you set up your account, and Betclic adjusts accepted payment methods by territory. So after you select how much you’ll be using to bankroll your purse, you can be confident your transaction is both safe and secure.

Bitcoin: Not Directly

Anyone looking to make a deposit at Betclic using Bitcoin will need to use an intermediary, such as NETELLER. You can use Bitcoin to fund your account there and then put that money in your Betclic purse.

Credit Cards: The Usual Options

Visa and Mastercard are the only two credit cards accepted by Betclic. Don’t take this as an actual limitation. Most other sportsbooks are the same way. It’s also worth noting that certain bettors from select territories will only be able to make deposits via credit card.

Withdraw Winnings

A Walk in the Park

Withdrawing money at Betclic is a simple matter. Once you’re logged in, just go to the “withdraw” option at the top of your screen, at which point you’ll be prompted to input your preferred payout method. 

Once you confirm your selection, it should only take between 24 and 48 hours for your transaction to process. Some payouts that aren’t bank transfers are even completed instantly.

Placing a Bet

No Sweating Required

The process of placing a bet at Betclic is just so smooth. Visiting their sportsbooks section will take you to a full list of lines. Once you select the ones you wish to invest in, they will be added to your betslip, which is displayed at the bottom of your screen.

Finally, when you’re ready to be, simply click on the red circle representing your betslip, and see how much you’ll win given the amount you’re prepared to risk.

Politics Betting

Intriguing, yet Restrictive

Only a couple of political betting options are available at Betclic. As of now, you can wager on the French presidential election and, most uniquely, who will become the next pope.

eSports

An Industry Anomaly

Betclic’s esports docket is surprisingly deep. They have all the most common games and tournaments, but contrary to most other sportsbooks, they offer a long list of props. Whether it’s Call of Duty or FIFA, you can bet on the final score or build your own spread.

Virtual Sports Betting

Not Available at BetClic

Virtual sports betting entails placing a wager on video games that are being simulated in real time. Not every sportsbook offers them, though. And true to that hit-or-miss market, Betclic is among those where virtual sports betting is unavailable.

NBA

Same Story, Different Sport

The NBA market at Betclic is set up identically to those in the NFL and MLB departments. They offer single game lines, conference futures and NBA Finals odds. But they once again weed out the props; they do not have options for the NBA draft, individual awards or single-game events outside the over/under, spread or moneyline.

On the bright side, Betclic does offer a ton of options for the NBA 2k league in the esports section. That makes up for many of the options they’ve eschewed in the props department.

US Open

Limited Selection at Betclic

Outrights are the only golf bets that Betclic has at the moment. You can wager on the winner of upcoming tournaments—and they do a good job publishing lines in advance—but they don’t have any props for you to sift through.

NFL

Plan Sailing

Game lines, division futures, win totals, Super Bowl predictions—all of the basic NFL options are at Betclic. If you’re looking to journey off the beaten path, into the NFL draft or individual awards, you’ll have to find a sportsbook that offers them.

MLB

A Solid Triple

Betclic’s MLB markets give you just about everything you could ask for—game lines, division futures, AL/NL championship lines and, of course, World Series odds. The only thing that stops this section from being a home run is the complete absence of day-to-day props.

More Betting Options

Betclic Offers Plenty

None of the aforementioned markets getting it done for you? No worries. Betclic also has extensive options available in badminton, bowling, boxing, chess, cricket, cycling, darts, esports, greyhound racing, soccer, hockey, MMA, Formula 1, other motorsports, rugby, tennis, and volleyball.

Casino

More than a BetClic Sportsbook

Games

Betclic’s casino gaming options include:

BetClic Casino Bonus

You’re going to love Betclic’s casino bonus. First-time users will receive a 100 percent match on their first deposit, valued up to €500. The only thing you need to do is sign up and place a wager in the casino to qualify.

Live Betting

Light and Breezy

Betclic organizes all the live events currently in play by sport. You can toggle between different ones by using the menu at the top.

Though lines can shift on a whim, you needn’t worry. Betclic’s odds are updated in real-time, and they’ll let you know if anything already on your bet slip changes before you submit your wager.

Parlay Betting

Increase Your Potential Return with One Click

Cobbling together parlay bets takes no additional effort on your part. Construct your betslip as you normally would, only before you go to submit, you just have to select the “multiples” option up top.

The site will also calculate your potential return for you. Just remember, that in order to hit on a parlay, all of your predictions need to pan out. One miss, and you lose.

Additional Betting Help

Not Enough at BetClic

Here are Betclic’s main alternative resources:

Betclic would really benefit from a blog of some sort—any kind of published product that keeps users informed of the latest news and, perhaps, even offers betting advice.

Promotions

No Complaints

Most of Betclic’s promotions are geared towards the poker room and casino, which can be annoying for sportsbook-only gamblers. But when we’re talking about programs that offer despoting matching bonuses, free plays and a rewards points system that can build up to free money, there’s no use splitting hairs.

Customer Service

Rocky at Best

Customer support can be a headache at Betclic. They have the usual page of frequently asked questions, but if you run into further issues or have additional inquiries, your only option is to email them. This site would greatly benefit from a live chat or customer service by phone choice.

Emails

Judicious Contact

It is our job to let you know if a sportsbook ends up spamming you. Believe us when we say that Betclic will not. They send you a confirmation email when you first set up your account, and they’ll only continue to email when confirming transactions or if you approved certain promotional notifications when registering.

Live Streaming

Not Here

Though BetClic does have a fully functional live betting section that will update scores and lines in real time, our research shows they don’t offer the readily accessible ability to stream live events. 

Conclusion

For the Straight Shooters

Betclic will more than get the job done for those who just want to get in, bet and get out. They don’t waste time with frills and thrills. You can create an account, make a deposit and place a bet within five minutes. The good reviews on their withdrawal process prove they are committed to their customers, even if they may lack a certain versatility when it comes to betting options. Overall, if you’re a no-nonsense sports bettor who’s open to—or already heavily involved in—online casinos and poker rooms, you’ll enjoy the experience at Betclic.
